not bad. undulating wafts of sound evoke the multi-stage experience of the modern phenomenon of travel. you can hear the jets build to a roar on the first track, the elemental roar of conveyance. the second track is darkly dissonant -- you can hear the car horns of the metropolis keeping its pulse. then the listener goes on a walkabout into the slithery wilderness, funky grooving "stroll" intro is eventually overwhelmed by the insects and wilderness. and travails ends on some resonant and ghostly banjo lines, conveying the trouble the traveler's seen. pretty cool.
